My name is Ernie Carrasco, and I work at the ICR School of Biblical Apologetics. I grew up believing that every word of the Bible is true. But in my late teens and young adult years, I was often confronted with the challenge of defending the Bible against the story of evolution. The only defense I could offer was “the Bible says.” That defense sufficed for me, but my challengers were never impressed.
I discovered ICR about 12 years ago and learned that good science confirms the truth of God’s Word. I am excited about the ICR Discovery Center for Science and Earth History because it will provide young and old alike with the tools they need to give an answer in addition to “the Bible says.”
In my work at ICR, I receive many questions about Noah’s Ark and the global Flood. One exhibit in the Discovery Center will include a 1/60-scale model of the complete Ark as well as a life-size portion of the vessel for visitors to walk through. Nearby, a four-foot globe will demonstrate the Flood’s progress all over the earth. Visitors will “experience” the answers to their questions. And more than that, they will understand God’s grace through such a catastrophic event.
I hope you will join me in prayer and financial support to see this wonderful project come to fruition.
